Dyce Juniors 2 v 1 SAINTS
In this our second league game of the season, we were once again severely hampered with quite a number of absentees. Injuries to Murray Buchan, Andrew Shepherd and Sam Smith, with suspended duo Steve Travers and Kieran Davidson were compounded by the unavailability of Cameron Buchan, Jamie Buglass, Riain Findlay, Chris Huggins, Grant Munro, Ryan Whelan and Callum Wilson. This left only 13 players available so two trialists were drafted in to bolster the days squad.
Under the circumstances the lads played pretty well against a Dyce team that are one of the favoured teams to challenge Banks O'Dee for the title.
Dyce took the lead on 13 minutes but Saints quickly equalised three minutes later when former Banchory player Magnus Barclay put through his own net. Ten minutes from half time Dyce scored their second and dominated until the interval. Despite having the better of the second half, Saints could not find the net to get what would have been a deserved draw.
